The University of Lincoln strives to offer a stimulating and supportive environment to enable postgraduate students to thrive. A number of specialist services are available to help you make the most of your time at Lincoln as a postgraduate student. This includes our award-winning Careers and Employability team, Student Support Centre and the University Library. The Students' Union also provides a range of support and opportunities for postgraduate students.
We encourage our students to make the most of every opportunity presented to them during their time at Lincoln. That can include getting involved in research and special interest groups, contributing to publications, talks, and conferences, or taking advantage of our broad range of training and development programmes. Postgraduate students undertaking a research programme can benefit from tailored support and training provided by the University’s Doctoral School.
To start making friends before you even arrive at the University you can join our dedicated Facebook group for the postgraduate community at the University of Lincoln to connect with like-minded students.
Postgraduate study is a hugely important step, where the fundamentals of your undergraduate education are further developed. You may be extending the knowledge and skills from your first degree, or you may be changing discipline. Either way, your period of study should be an enormously enriching one and I would encourage you to take full advantage of your time here. As such, by becoming a fully engaged postgraduate student in your course, but also within the wider university postgraduate community, we hope you will have a highly rewarding experience. We look forward to welcoming you to our postgraduate community.
Farhan Ahmed, Dean of Postgraduate Education
